The project will activate and motivate culturally interested young people as cocreative youth ambassadors around cultural institutions in Viborg municipality. The formation of youth groups based on the specificity of the institutions, and thus also on the interests of the young people, gives young people between 15 and 25 years the opportunity to develop their ideas and wishes for concrete cultural events/activities for all young people in the area. In this way, the cultural institutions get to know the interests and wishes of young people, and at the same time the young people get a sense of belonging to the cultural institutions and the institutions become visible to young people in general in Viborg Municipality.
Staff of the participating cultural institutions are available to their own youth group in the project development process. In addition to active involvement of all parties, all participants disseminate through their own networks and knowledge sharing in the project in order to create models for use by other cultural institutions. Within the project period, ways of anchoring co-creative youth in the city's cultural life in the future will be discussed and implemented.
